My only audio place.
I went here to get some audio CDs. Even though there are a variety of genres, I think that most of the CDs are actually outdated. Well, either that or that I went there when most of the newest audio CDs are sold out. I went to the branch in Sungei Wang Plaza and one of the staffs there was pretty friendly and we had a good chat. He was kind enough and offered to reserve the CDs for me as I did not carry enough money with myself that time and I had to find an ATM.
I bought quite a number of CDs like Jason Mraz's Love is a Four Letter Word and Eminem's Relapse. However, do know that the CDs here went through Malaysia censorship and vulgar words are censored out. This causes most of the songs in Eminem's album to sound weird as there are short pauses at frequent intervals. I won't recommended buying albums with a very 'colourful' words here. You will be disappointed.
Bought a few Dragon Ball discs here.
Ever since I was a kid, I've always been a fan of cartoons. In particular, anime. I remember bugging my mother to buy me a few dragonball discs just so I could watch it at home. There was plenty of other discs around to choose but I couldn't be bothered about it as I had set my eyes on dragonball. There was no problems with it, the english dub was pretty good and there was no lags whatsoever.
Recently though, my friend bought a few One Piece discs from Speedy Video and it was...pretty sad actually. It was in japanese voice with english subtitles which wasn't a problem. The problem was that the translation is way off. They didn't spell the character's name right and I could sense no logic in the subtitle. Not only that, it was clearly written that the people who subbed it was an online subtitle group that stated clearly that they do not want their work to be used for commercial purpose. Disappointing.
A place for Korean drama DVDs
It's a great feeling to see there's still an old school video store standing strong in the middle of this digital era where music and movies are easily downloadable for free from the internet. But sadly, the number of such store has decreased, no thanks to the millions of illegal downloads nowadays.
Speedy Video is the one place that I have no choice but go to whenever I decided to get my fix on Asian series, dramas and movies. Sometimes, I do come here without purpose and ended up buying some DVDs after seeing some old titles that's hardly shown on the tv now.
This store carries a wide range of music and movies, perfect for some real movie buffs' personal collection. Speedy has an extensive collection of the latest and most popular Korean drama series and there is no place I can go to except here to buy a stack of my favorite series for such an affordable price.
